India is going through a phase of transition. The New India, the India that is technologically up and vibrant is replacing the old India. Naturally like every other change, this one will take some time to transform India holistically but changes have started taking place almost everywhere from the most advanced metro cities to the countryside villages.
India is aspiring to be a Knowledge Economy and Digital India Project is the vehicle of Government of India to drive that change. The programme aims to ensure easy accessibility to government services and technology infrastructure for all. At present, Information Technology (IT) gives employment to more than 30 lakh people and by the end of Digital India Project, it will generate employment for another 45-50 million people which is gigantic.
Digital India is a programme to prepare India for a future that will transform the existing infrastructure. Technology is the central enabler of this upcoming change. A detailed description of Digital India Programme can be read at DEITy website.
